hoodie
I started knitting a hoodie a year ago and while most of it is complete, I redid the hood (lots of work: 4 balls of 8 ply). It's now being sewn up and not before time as winter is now here. I'll post a pic soon!

Oh, nice one, David. It does look very cosy, and I love the color, which looks great on you. Of course, that's such an all around good color; it looks kinda like a blue jean color to me. Is that close to the shade of blue?

I can't see the stitches very well, but the seams look perfect!

Antares - thanks. Yes it's fairly close but if you look at the blue in sunlight there are hints of purple and green. The whole things is miles of stocking stitch ... took about 20 balls of 50g 8 ply.
